Hi all,

one of the things we discussed a couple weeks ago was stopping work on 
the above two documents.

"HTML: The Markup Language" has been a useful document and a number of 
its ideas have been incorporated into the HTML specification proper. But 
overall it is more documentation oriented and would seem to be developed 
better as such (rather than using the heavyweight Recommendation 
process). We've been talking with the fine people who work on 
WebPlatform.org to make sure that the content isn't lost but rather 
finds a new home there.

"HTML5: Edition for Web Authors" serves a useful purpose, but it does 
not seem useful to publish it as a document on its own. Rather, we can 
use a style switcher in the specification and toggle the view. Steve has 
been working on that.

Unless there are solid objections, these two documents will therefore be 
republished as Notes to indicate that work on them has stopped.
